M440i is here. I think the car's engineering accomplishments speak for themselves.

The visual design - as with any other radical departure - will be validated more so by sales numbers and less so by rhetoric.

Thank you! Glad that you enjoyed it.

Absolutely agree - performance and engineering wise the car is next level compared to the previous model and that's coming from an F36 owner.

While looks are subjective, I think the 4 series has always been the BOLD model BMW's lineup and they have the 3 series for those, for who the 4 is ''too much''
This is only the second generation 4 series, the first gen wasn't 'bold' at all, its design language was similar to the sedan variant as were 3 series coupes of old. IMO the issue with the G22 is that the front end design just don't flow well with the rest of the car. I mean if BMW had simply copied and pasted the front of the 8'er the end result would have been very different!

My 2020 330i Msport, with the track handling pack has this as well. you simply hold the left paddle for more than 1 second and instant power..
Huh? So I just hold down the left shift paddle whenever?

Confused.. My 2021 says 'Eboost' when I floor it.
Hey, yeah you can do this in any gear. It's used for "overtaking" if you just hold the left paddle it should active sprint mode!
Sprint mode isn't a real thing. All it does is downshift two gears FYI.

I currently drive 2017 BMW 440i Gran Coupe with every option. It's one of the best cars I've owned.

Ignoring visual esthetics as the grill doesn't bother me, the next generation G26 Gran Coupe may no longer feature hatchback in the rear - which happens to be the most practical F36 feature.

So X4MC is on top of the shopping list at the moment.

I came from a Gran Coupe as well, lovely vehicle. From everything I've heard thus far, the new 4 GC will have the hatchback/lift-back. It wont have the door handles anymore though, it'll have the Tesla/Velar type handles that are flush.

I am guessing you haven't seen M3 and its new "boldness"?

6-series successor is 8-series. Aka, 4-series competition isn't A7, Panamera, CLS, S-class coupe/convertible etc, it's the 8 (depending on the 8's body style).

Without a doubt it's an overpriced uglier mustang gt. And probably less of an "ultimate driving machine" than the mustang

I have to be honest. I hate the way the rear 2/3rds looks more than the grille. It just look so generic.

M440xi

I just took delivery of my M440xi. The car is extremely fast and handles better then my previous 440xi. Unlike many people I like the grille and all the lines of the car. I also ordered the car in San Remo green. Outrageous color

Yes the F82 is also a good looking car.

IMO the M8 coupe and M2 are the best looking Bmw's of recent times. In terms of looks they're next level. But looks are subjective - to each their own

And yup, it's a shame everyone only talks about the looks of the car, while completely ignoring that the new 4 series might be one of the best driver cars made in years. Superb comfort and refinement and yet a brutal engine and tons of power.

Hopefully as some time passes, people will get used to the looks and will start to acknowledge the other aspects of the car.

The AWD M4 will def do 3.5 from 0-62. Maybe even faster.
I love mine
O-H!

A manufacture trying hard to justify their controversial and disliked decision, shocking!

And no, the future is with anything that brings the right characteristics and beauty. Anything but a post 2018 new BMW.

If that's what you look for in your BMW, this car is for you.

Actually, looking at the specs owners are focusing on, they are exactly the right audience for this car.
right, because if dont have 90k to spend on an M car, youre a scumbag and definitely not a real bmw owner. installing coilovers and maybe a strut brace, thats for morons who like working on their cars, definitely not something we do here.
